The statement cited absence of transparency and corruption in implementation of infrastructural projects as the main reason behind the embezzlement over the past one and a half decade.

Sibghatullah Karimi, CSTIA coordinator, said some projects were awarded to companies based on favoritism and did not go through a legal procedure.
